Propecia is the first FDA approved pill for hair loss. Propecia contains 1 mg of the drug finasteride, that is often sold as proscar. Propecia is the first drug approved for slowing or reducing hair loss on the top and the middle of the head. To date it has not been effictive in reducing receding of the hairline at the temples.
By blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reducctase that lowers levels of DHT is how propecia works, this main enzyme is what converts testosterone to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). The assumption is that blocking the DHT levels will reduce hair loss as DHT will attack and reduce hair follicles in those that are genetically disposed.
Propecia can have some negative side effects. These can include impotence and erectile problems, increase of blackheads and oil on the skin of the face. Propecia carries a risk of birth defects in babies and should not be taken by women who are pregnant. Once you begin taking propecia you must continue and it can be quite expensive
Rogaine is a hair loss product by Pfizer, and is a popular non perscription hair loss product to promote hair regrowth. Rogaine has some side effects such as red, irritated and itchy skin at the area of application. If too much is applied, it can cause systemic absorption leading to itching, swelling, redness and rash. Rogaine must be used continually or hair loss will begin again. Rogaine works by binding to the hair follicle causing a tempory protection against DHT. Men can detect hair regrowth in about eight months. Women within about twelve months.
Hair Replacements/Hair systems
A Hair Replacement/Hair System usually involves one of many methods of securing either synthetic or real hair to existing hair on the head. The new hair can cover areas of balding. The biggest problem with this type of hair loss replacement is that the systems often do not look real. Non surgical systems such as wigs, toupees and so on often look fake and do not match the recipients real hair will enough to be undetectable.
Hair Transplantation is a surgical technique that involves taking healthy hair from non DHT sensitive areas of the scalp and regrafting the hair follicles into the affected balding areas. The advantage of this method is that the newly transplanted hair follicles are nonsusceptible to DHT attack because they are non DHT sensetive - mainly the back and sides of the head. This means that the transplanted hair follicles will remain more immune to the DHT process of balding. This method is very effective, but time consuming and can be very expensive. Depending on the amount of grafts it can easily cost in excess of $10,000.00.
Inhairit Hair Loss Products
The Inhairit Hair Loss product is a natural topical solution that is applied to the thinning areas of the scalp. Inhairit works by reducing 5-alpha-reductase (the enzyme that produces DHT) thus acting as a DHT blocker, By eliminating DHT production that causes the hair follicle to become small weak and inactive, the hair follicle gets new life by getting blood circulation and the nutrients needed and this reduces the effects of male and female hair loss. Healthy new hair will emerge from the follicles and the production of new hair continues, Inhairit penetrates through the skin, removing waste and detoxifying. In addition to removing toxins it reinforces nutrients to the area of the hair root, bulb and popilla. It stimulates and increases scalp circulation which boosts hair regrowth. Inhairit ensures supply of quality nutrients and neutralizes toxin building agents. This hair loss product will last 4 to 5 weeks and is reasonably priced at $34.95.
We believe that our hair loss comparison shows that Inhairit, then Propecia followed by Rogaine provide the best results for money spent on a treatment.
